      Re: Help setting up new router

      You need to check to see if you are on MER

      And then use these settings if not

      Re: Help setting up new router

      Hi Follow this Sky User - How to get your Sky Sagem F@ST2504n Router Statistics And look at this bit especially



      Where it says WAN next to it will either be MER or PPPoA

      Edit: Or this one when you first log in (not sure if it would show there or not though)

      You will need your password and user name from the sky router from here- https://www.cm9.net/skypass/

      These below are settings I use from my non sky router which is also MER, you just force the PPPoA .


      Connect Mode ADSL (Current Main Port: ADSL)
      Protocol PPPoA (RFC2364, PPP over AAL5)
      VPI /VCI 0 / 38
      Username ************@skydsl
      Password ***************
      IP Address Obtain an IP Address Automatically
      Authentication Protocol Auto
      IP Address 0.0.0.0
      Obtain DNS Automatically Enable
      Primary DNS 90.207.238.97/ Secondary DNS 90.207.238.99 /
      MTU 1492
